Two Norwich City players have been named in the official Premier League Team of the Week for match week five, following Saturday’s brilliant 3-2 victory over Manchester City.

Selected by former England captain Alan Shearer each week, Canaries players Emi Buendia and Jamal Lewis have been included, in a rather attacking 4-2-4 formation.

City head coach Daniel Farke has also been placed in charge of the Team of the Week after guiding his injury-hit squad to victory over the reigning champions.

Buendia set up two of the goals as the hosts pulled off an upset at a raucous Carrow Road and also played a key role in the build-up to Todd Cantwell's goal.

Shearer provides a short summary of each player to the Premier League's website and said of the former Argentina Under-20 international: "Did it all against the reigning champions. He got two assists and was absolutely everywhere."
